      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

stabalizer length

Recommended Posts

I have talked to many bow hunting "experts" and they say you don't want a really long stabalizer on your bow. but yet i see bows with 10" stabalizers on them. Doesn't that get your bow unbalanced?

Actually a longer stabilizer will usually balance the bow in your hand better. The reason you don't see longer stabilizers on hunting rigs is that they get in the way when bushwhacking through the woods, don't fit in bow cases, & overall are just not practical. We're not shooting 10 rings in the woods... just need something to absorb a bit of shock and add some forward weight.

I used to be in the "short stab." club but after the suggestion of some of the guys at Cabin Fever I tried a couple of the 10-12" stabs. I think they do a better job of calming down the bow wandering while sighting and they don't get in the way as much as I thought. Now I've got an 11.5" stab and it does great. I bushwack a lot and hike all over the place. Except for keeping it in the case I have no complaints.

Wieght gives you ballance, length gives you stability. Freestyle target shooters like that long length for more stability. So a 10 ounce stabilizer that is 4 inches long or 30 inches long will ballance the same but the 30 incher should give you tighter groups. Then there's the vibration factor. Lots of the short stabilizers help reduce it different ways.

It doesn't take much to stablilize most new bows. A $20 S-coil will give you all the dampening you need. I like the added length and a little extra weight for the balance and the stability. I cna really trell the difference between my scoil and my vibracheck.

as others have said, its not really the length of the stab that stabilizes the bow, its the weight of it. The length does help stop bow movement. The longer the stab the more it will correct shaking and such. Its why you see target bows with 36" long stabilizers.

Shorter stabilizers are easier to move around in a tree, I for one like the added confidence I get from a slightly longer stabilizer. I think mine on my bow is a 12" doinker.
